Hardware emulation is still emulation.

FPGAs are 100% cycle accurate, if done correctly, and I don't have any doubt it's the same here.

They've been used to get perfect reproductions of arcade hardware for years now.

>> No.4548705

There is no HDMI mod yet for SNES.

The best you can do is to run the signal through a line-doubler / tripler ADC like the OSSC, and when you factor that plus the cost of an SD2SNES, then you might as well go with the Super Nt, which is, for all intents and purposes, a real SNES.

I assume it's difficult to just start reproducing a really old chip while FPGAs are mass produced so it costs a lot less.

It does when you're too stupid to tell the difference between software level and hardware level emulation. Which is more like a simulator since the circuits are reprogrammed directly. Try actually researching FPGAs you goddamn autist.

It's as much of an emulator as a Dendy NES is.

>> No.4548724

There could be edge cases with specific games that produce errors; this happens even in hardware revisions of an original console.

With an ASIC there would be no way to fix the problem once it’s gone to manufacturing. An FPGA means that the simulation can be changed and improved over time. (It also makes the SD card jailbreak and Core Store possible)

The fpga is cheaper than trying to find a chip fab that would spit out only like 10k of these chips. And Nintendo would be likely to come after them.

Actually kiddo if you look at the post chain (bit different than your reddit) you can see I said hardware emulation. Not that it matters though because it's emulation. This just sad at this point that common core kids ignore the dictionary.

I have plenty of older monitors here that still work. They may not be as accessible to everyone as they'd wish, but I've got plenty of CRTs to last me for some time.

FPGA is fucking great, but there can be a difference. I own a jrok multi williams board and a real joust cabinet. Even in the same cabinet (i bought the "official" jrok joust to jamma adapter) they are very slightly different. Same cabinet is important because there are williams leaf switches which feel different than regular microswitch buttons.

I bought my joust cabinet for $50 believe it or not, but the boards were really fucked up. I sent all boards to "the real bob roberts" to have them repaired. He used to be a williams tech for williams and bought a lot of diagnostic equipment when they liquidated. The guys a legend at repair. Anyway, while he was fixing the boards I bought the jrok one.

The jrok board is fucking quality but joust does play slightly different. There can sometimes be slight graphical problems, VERY slight but it happened. I'm a fucking sperg about joust and used to play it almost daily until a few years ago. Now, I'm out of practice and forgot patterns. There was also something just a touch off about the physics, i can't remember exactly as it's been a few years, but I could never beat the high score from real hardware on a jrok board.

I don't think it's an issue for anyone really, jrok is great, but there can be slight differences. Again FPGA is great, I'm not knocking it at all.

>> No.4549028

Yeah I totally agree, if done correctly it's a damn fine thing. The aforementioned jrok board is honestly great. I imagine the issue came from the fact it was a multi game pcb and not focused on one particular set of hardware. I'm no expert in the matter, so I may be talking out my ass here, but I imagine if you're focusing on one particular system you could get closer to perfection.

Again, the issues in joust weren't that bad and unless you were turbo autist or trying to master it for high scores you'd never notice the miniscule differences.

Will it have identical or reduced input latency as compared to an SNES?

It has a FPGA. The FPGA is arranged to simulate a SNES. That is electrically, it is actually pretending to be a Ricoh 5A22 interfacing with a S-SMP etc etc etc.

It is like having a system on chip or clone console than it is a retron5 or raspberry pi.

Ok so this is a completely different level than just some faggot putting snes9x on a raspberry pi.

So would you say it's just as good about the lag?
Would it be able to play off of SD cards?
That would be more functionality than an SNES of course, but still...

>> No.4549485

It has an SD slot and its design is similar to the ANT Mini which can not only load roms from SD but can load additional "cores" to its fpga to simulate other consoles. The hope is that it will also do this only better with a bigger FPGA as well as cheaper (the ANT Mini was like $400 IIRC).

What would the video out be?

I'd imagine they'd have RCA and also HDMI.

Would be ideal if they allowed for multiple outs, like composite, S-video, component, AND HDMI. Cover all the bases.

There are simpler solutions that don't cost 200 bucks. This is for people who want the advantages of emulation but think that emulators are beneath them.

>> No.4549576

The base unit is HDMI only, which was apparently a cost-saving measure to keep the price down.

The Nt mini has HDMI plus analog (RGB / component / S-video / composite) out via 15-pin D-Sub connector, but only one of them could be used at any time.

This time around for the Super Nt, Analogue is offering an external DAC that they say adds no lag. You’ll probably be just fine with any of the other adapters out there.

What is even the point? This isn't the fucking 90s, emulators for 8 and 16 bit consoles are accurate enough for there to be no noticeable difference between an emulator and an emulator box. If you want 100% accuracy then use real hardware, if you want convenience then use an emulator.
